Why request a second opinion from the Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology?
Children and adolescents have conditions and needs unique to them. Because we specialize in pediatric care, we are more familiar than adult hospitals with gynecologic conditions that appear in childhood, such as congenital anomalies and abnormal menstruation.
In addition to our pediatric gynecological expertise, we take great care with our patients knowing that the treatment they receive as children can affect them after puberty and into adulthood. This is one reason we created the Fertility Preservation and Reproductive Late Effects Program. This program is designed to address gaps in care and to improve the fertility and reproductive health of patients receiving chemotherapy, radiation or surgical procedures that may impact fertility. A second opinion from Children’s Colorado can help your child get care that will benefit them now and for years to come.
